elevated JsxHq March 7, 1930 – January 30, 2023

Gaby Matar passed away peacefully on Monday, January 30, 2023 at 10:50 am surrounded by his loving family at the Credit Valley Hospital, at the age of 92.  Dad was a great family man, loving husband to his wife Leila, a wonderful father to Rula, Carole (Sari) and Khalid (Melissa).  He adored his 5 grandchildren and took pleasure in lovingly watching them grow up.  Gaby will be remembered for his witty sense of humour, street smarts, quiet gaze, extreme inner strength and most of all, faith in all that is good.  He was a very humble man with the biggest heart and incomparable generosity.  
 
Gaby loved watching his sports, no matter what was on tv, he recorded one while watching the other.  It could be tennis, base ball, hockey, soccer, he followed them all through mom’s morning newspaper clippings.   He also loved his backyard, whether looking after his vegetable garden, his rose garden or his many fruit trees.  There are many squirrels out there in Mississauga that remember the numerous traps that dad laid out to prevent them from eating his crop.  Whether it be a net over this cherry trees or picking his apricots before the animals would get to them first.  A struggle and competition ensued many years between dad and his neighbourly animals.
 
A celebration of his life is held with the below particulars and burial will be held in the spring.  Please feel free to add any special memories you have of Gaby in the comment section below.
God Bless you all and May he rest in peace.
